Fox and Grapes in Sneinton Market – Beer and Pizza

The Fox and Grapes in Sneinton Market is one of the latest pubs to open up in Nottingham under the Castle Rock Brewery umbrella. This particular opening back in September was most welcome as it saw the re-emergence of a Public House that has been located at this spot since the 1830’s. In recent times…

Breakfast at The Silly Sausage in the Cattle Market

The Silly Sausage Cafe is located inside the old Cattle Market Tavern on Meadow Lane. This building was a pub that offered refreshment to the farmers and traders at the cattle market. Apparently they had a special licence to open early on market days. I can just imagine them all popping in for a pint…

Pub Lunch at the Poppy and Pint

The Poppy and Pint is a great community pub, situated inside the old British Legion building, right in the midst of Lady Bay. While it is primarily a Pub at heart serving Real Ales and Great Pub Food, it also acts as social hub for the local people and local groups. I have been here…

The Toll Bar – A Friendly Welcome, Real Ale and Pieminister Pies

  The Toll Bar is the latest resident of the pub space at Tollhouse Hill  by the big roundabout that joins up Maid Marian Way, Derby road and Lower Parliament Street. It has been back open about a couple of weeks now and it is offering up Real Ales, Pieminister Pies,  and 200 degrees coffee…

Wigflex Chicken and Waffles Pop-up at Nottingham Street Food

Wigflex were at the Nottingham Street Food market this weekend hosting a ‘Chicken and Waffles’ pop-up. Their Facebook page said that it was just going to be a ‘one-off’ event. I suppose that depending on how successful they felt it had gone they might carry on? 🙂 I love a bit of Chicken and Waffles…

Vegan ‘Fish and Chips’ at The Peacock

The Peacock at the foot of Mansfield Road in Nottingham is a fantastic Victorian Pub serving a decent selection of Real Ales. Last year they made the decision to launch a Vegan menu which in my mind was quite a brave decision. This week we finally came in to try it out,  my partner in…

Slurping Bowls of Pho at the Bun Mii Vietnamese cafe

Bun Mii Vietnamese Café on George Street is one of the newest additions to the Asian dining scene in Nottingham. I popped over at the weekend to try them out as I heard a few whispers on the street that there was a place in town serving authentic Vietnamese food that I really needed to…

Jumbo Breakfast at Chocks Away in Nottingham Airport at Tollerton

  Breakfast Time at Chocks Away “Chocks Away” is the sort of place where you pop in for a simple bacon cob and end up with a massive plateful of lovely breakfast joy. In fact I sometimes feel that the breakfast menu at Chocks Away is really masquerading as a kind of competition 🙂 Just…

Scoffing Pub Burgers at Langtrys in Nottingham

Langtrys in Nottingham by the corner house is a great pub to meet up at before a trip to the theatre, before going to the flicks at the nearby cinema, or just for  pint with mates. We often start the night here as it is a nice pub with some decent real ale and you…

Fish and Chips at the Brewhouse and Kitchen on Trent Bridge

The Brewhouse & Kitchen at Trent Bridge is the latest encumbent of the pub building that has housed The Town Arms, The Aviary, and Casa during my Nottingham Lifetime. I popped along the Victoria embankment from my nearby apartment with the sole intention (pardon the pun) of checking them out as a possible option for…
